Mt. Kilimanjaro is a vision that has fed the human imagination for years

Mt. Kilimanjaro is a vision that has fed the human imagination for years. Much more than the highest mountain in Africa, it is innately and inexhaustibly symbolic. Writers render it, climbers conquer it, Africans worship it, and at the end of the day its magnetic singularity remains undiminished. Though speechless wonder reigns in its presence, the traveller who witnesses Kilimanjaro Mountain will speak of it for years.
